About the tour

Guides at Wakehurst are all dedicated volunteers with a wide knowledge and passion for the Gardens. The free tour is designed for individuals and families. We have a limit of 25 people, so if you are coming with a group please pre-book a tailored tour.

The tour will take from 45 mins to one hour and, depending on the guide, will concentrate on the ornamental gardens close to the Mansion, looking at plants of seasonal interest as well as explaining some of the history of the house and Gardens. It will also look at the vital conservation work being undertaken in the Millennium Seed Bank and by the horticultural team here.
